    "Computer Simulations in Medical Engineering", 19 November 2008, IMechE, London,UK

    Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)

    1 Birdcage Walk

    London SW1H 9JJ, UK

    Full programme available at:

    Organising committee: Georges Limbert and Mark Taylor (University of Southampton, UK)

    Computer simulation techniques are revolutionising the way research and development is conducted for developing new products in a wide range of industries such as Pharmaceutics, Biomedical and Bio-Engineering.

    Through practical case studies from key academic and industry specialists, this event will present novel state-of-the-art computational techniques and explore how these tools can solve a variety of problems in Medicine and related fields.

    Confirmed speakers include:

    - Dr Yiannis Ventikos, University of Oxford, UK

    - Dr Philippe Young, Simpleware Ltd, UK

    - Dr Dawn Walker, Kroto Research Institute, University of Sheffield, UK

    - Dr Jonathan Jeffers, Finsbury Orthopaedics, UK

    - Professor Mark Sansom, University of Oxford, UK

    - Dr Daniel Kelly, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

    - Dr Sandra Shefelbine, Imperial College London, UK

    - Dr Francoise Dufour, Arup, UK

    - Professor Mark Taylor, University of Southampton, UK

    Confirmed exhibitors include COMSOL, ESI Group

    The event will cover and explore computational tools and ideas in:

    1/ State of the art mathematical/computational techniques:

    * Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

    * Agent-Based Modelling (ABM)

    * Computational Molecular Dynamics (CMD)

    * Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

    * Image -based modelling

    2/ Computational modelling of the mechanics of biological tissues and structures as well as biomaterials: Tissue Engineering, Biological Tissue/Medical Device interface, Pre-Operative Planning, material performance.

    3/ Computational modelling of mechanobiological processes: growth, remodelling and healing.

    The objectives of the day are to:

    * Explore novel ideas and learn how computational simulation techniques can be used to design, develop and improve the performance of medical devices, clinical treatments and drugs.

    * Expand the awareness and prospects of consultant engineers/researchers into the high-growth biomedical engineering market.

    * Expand the awareness of pharmaceutical and medical device companies on the benefits of using computer simulations in the development of their products.

    * Foster cross-discipline networking and collaboration opportunities among researchers from Engineering and the Biosciences, consultant engineers and medical device/pharmaceutical/ biomedical companies.

    NB: Numbers are restricted to 60 people and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
